One of the biggest hinderances to retailers or other businesses choosing to update their physical office space is the need to shut down while the work is being done. What if, however, there was a way for work to keep right on going without a need to stop?
While every expansion and renovation is unique, there are some common measures by which owners or property managers may be able to get the space they need without sacrificing business along the way.
Even major construction projects can be done alongside the regular work with the right contractor and a handful of considerations.
Staying up to speed on the progress of the project goes a long way in being able to stay open while the work progresses. Surprises are never fun. Plan for regular check-ins with contractors and make sure the relevant information is disseminated adequately.
The right timing and methods for communication can help avoid any sudden shutdowns while letting contractors know how best to do their job without getting in the way. As with the success of any relationship, communication is key!
This concept also extends to your customers and clients who do not want to be surprised either. Put the effort in to communicate the construction early and often, along with your rationale behind the work being done.
Knowing there will be some unforeseen circumstances with any construction project, staying flexible is vital to keeping the doors open while making improvements or enlarging your current space.
Minimizing big decisions that may otherwise affect your business—such as launching a massive new project or clearance sale—for after the construction is finished will help keep day to day operations simple.
Keep a copy of the construction timeline right next to you as plans for your business are made, but also build in a buffer for each event.
